I don't think "how long" applies anymore. They, along with you and me, are automatically at fault. It's the "new civility"!

It’s Sarah fault, Bush loaded the gun, and Rove mapped out the school.

Just goes to show you how far the public education system has fallen. The kids today are too dumb to read signs or laws that state schools are 'gun free zones'. Maybe they think the signs mean its ok to bring a gun to school

I don’t understand. I thought schools were gun free zones. Isn’t there a law against taking firearms to school zones?

Oh, and since I keep getting irritated posts when I make comments like the one above, I should point out that this is me being facetious.

Even if this shooter was a member of the democrat party, thought 9-11 was an inside job, hates Bush, hates Fox News, watches MSNBC, has Think Progress and Democrat Underground on his internet favorites, and was a “Youth for Obama” volunteer...

If he once said he was mad at the government he would be labled an ANTI GOVERNMENT TEA PARTY TYPE!!!!

Wow, are you serious? That's sad that there are people who do not understand that you are being facetious. This saddens me to know even some of my FReeper brothers and sisters fail to use the "noodle" and make knee-jerk reactions...:-(

Two shot, not 3, and now being reported as an “accidental” shooting, when a back pack was dropped, and the student that brought the gun to school is in custody.

Well, here we go again with a opportuity for the oh so predictable editorials unrelated to any factual reporting. From Ronald Reagan, through Columbine and Virginia Tech, and on to Phoenix the fiction will re-emerge that ever more precise laws preventing law-abiding people from carrying pistols or rifles will eventually force psychopaths to cower before rules restricting firearms.

However, a rigorous, twenty-year study by John Lott and William Landes from University of Chicago Law School supports expanding concealed carry in public places. Subsequent studies of national data in academic journals show 16 studies finding that right-to-carry laws reduce violent crime and show 10 with findings of no discernible effect. No exacting, peer reviewed study refutes their position.

Passage of shall issue laws correlates with large decreases in multiple victim shootings, and reduced harm when shootings actually occur. Use of citizen deadly force makes startling interruptions causing assailants to abandon or improvise assaults. Police then respond to incidences in progress, instead of arriving for body counts and paperwork.

Also important were absences of shootings. Public place shootings provide perpetrators leading roles in malevolent fantasies. Previously imagined screams and explosions suddenly penetrate their beings, embellished by intimate, self-created visual stimuli of human terror, bloody mists, broken bodies, culminating in splendid, convulsive suicides at their chosen moment. The latent presence of armed citizens provides a deterrent disqualifying certain places, and leading prospective murderers to abandon fantasies, or to seek a supportive “gun free” environment.

Rather than invite or allow licensed individuals greater opportunity to thwart violence, it seems more comforting for public officials and writers such as Dionne to weave pleasing elusions around an occasional Columbine, Omaha mall or Virginia Tech. We can expect public places to remain official islands of contentment for predators and psychopaths, during the ten-minute plus police response time.

However if we must suffer more rational firearms laws directed at instruments instead humans let us follow a more consistent, connected liberal logic. The unaddressed problem here obviously has to do with inflammatory rhetoric. For just one example consider that in Fairfax County Virginia guns appear to live passive lives. Yet as soon as they cross the Potomac River and enter the Anacostia area of Washington D.C., they become psychopaths when hearing rules associated with rigid gun control legislation.

We need to take a lead from the Obama administration, which has excised such phrases as “unlawful enemy combatant” and “war on terror” from any discussion surrounding the events of 9/11 and thereafter. Guns need to understand we are not at war with them. If we approach them with an open mind and without preconditions, then we can arrive at lasting détente.

Using this more embracing, benevolent approach to interacting with guns; legislation should consider ways to make guns feel welcome. Let’s require teachers with concealed carry permits to take their pistols to work. In this way guns would not feel offended, and would be unlikely to react violently.

They need to get the NRA’s Eddie Eagle in there to teach gun safety so that when guns are brought in against the rules then at least they will be brought in safely.

One student “critical.”

School district probably doesn’t want a student riot, so “accident” fits the bill.
